The cultural heritage of a place consists of historical exhibits, crafted by man/creator, which attest to the social impact and the conceptual character of the modes of expression at their disposal. By virtue of safekeeping and displaying collections owned by cultural institutions, the “exhibit” becomes distanced from human presence –creator and user alike.

In the course of the “Body & Exhibit” lecture, we look at ways of expanding contemporary creation – and, by extension, the human body. Contemporary art visits and investigates its “essential” origin, whilst at the same time the historical exhibit is reincorporated into a dimension of direct connection to human presence, defining its – persistent – critical importance as “eternal” work of art.

The “Body & Exhibit” discussion brings together esteemed speakers from different forms of expression such as the visual arts, photography, dance and architecture, investigating the impact of various practices and specific artworks, and having as central axis the archaeological exhibit. The discussion will be followed by a tour of the “Temple-boy” exhibition.
